Ahead of Nigeria’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Guinea-Bissau, 10 Super Eagles stars have now been confirmed to have arrived camp in Abuja.

Nigeria will play Guinea-Bissau in a doubleheader on Friday, March 24, at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja from 5:00 pm, before travelling to the stadio 24 de Setembro in Bissau on Monday, 27 March, with kick off also slated for 5:00 pm WAT.

Leicester City star Kelechi Iheanancho, Everton's Alex Iwobi, Atalanta's Ademola Lookman, Southampton's Joe Aribo, and Hoffenheim's Kevin Akpoguma were one of the six early birds at the Super Eagles’ John Woods Hotel.

The Liecester City midfielder will be looking to lead the Super Eagles of Nigeria midfield as Peseiro seems short of options in that department.

Omonia Nicosia goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has also joined in with the rest of the group on Monday.

Uzoho is expected to be the Super Eagles’ first-choice ahead of the clash at the Moshood Abiola Stadium this Thursday.
